In Ukrainian folklore, rusalkas are pale girls, living in ponds and other waters. They are one type of undead folk in Ukrainian folklore. On a summer celebration of "Ivana Kupala" they are especially active, coming out of water, combing their hair with a fish-bones comb, and luring young men underwater. Fern and pond flowers are also symbolic to Ukrainian folklore and the celebration of Ivana Kupala. That's my crude summary, I am truly inspired by Ukrainian folklore and folk-art.
